Save Darius, Beat Osteosarcoma

My name is Darius Jackson. I am a 23 year old recent graduate of Georgia State University, having majored in Computer Information Systems. After graduation, I had a change of heart for my career track. Since a young age, I have always had a strong passion for working with the youth, be it my experiences as a summer camp counselor, my volunteer work at my former elementary school, and my recent launch of Young Rosewood, a social club/mentorship organization at my former high school, Southwest DeKalb High, in Decatur, GA. This change of heart encouraged me to pass the GACE (Georgia Assessments for the Certification of Educators) and pursue a career as an elementary mathematics teacher. This summer, months after graduating, my dreams were temporarily sidelined by the unfortunate diagnosis of osteosarcoma. This blindsided me completely, especially being an individual who has never been hospitalized overnight and has come in contact with no major ailments or illnesses, other than seasonal allergies. I was referred to this site in hopes that I will reach individuals who see my story and will be able to help me inspire others. My passion to serve others is as strong as ever, and through prayer, peace, positivity, and family, I see myself back on track very soon.
